All drives must land in the fairway to be measured. Each hole will have a distance flag or plaque as the marker to beat. All competitors who drive past the marker shall update it to the spot where their ball lands and sign their name. At the end of the tournament, the last name on each marker shall win a prize.
Putting contest: For an entry fee of $10, paid at the registration desk at check-in, players can participate in our putting contest offering a $5,000 prize to the highest qualifier to sink the final prize putt. The contest will occur in two phases.
-- Qualifying phase: This phase will take place on a designated spot on the practice greens near the staging area. Players who purchase an entry fee can attempt a qualifying putt while transiting from Hole 7 to Hole 8. Qualifying putts will be rank-ordered by means of measuring closest to the hole. All qualifying putts that sink will automatically tie for first. If no qualifying putts sink, then the closest to the hole will qualify for the final prize putt. If more than one contestant sinks a qualifying putt, then they will face off in a tie-breaker round of closest to the hole putts until a top qualifier emerges. The top qualifier will move on to attempt the final putt. The top 3 qualifiers will win consolation prizes.
-- Final Putt phase: The top qualifier will attempt a 50 ft putt from another spot, aiming for another hole on the practice green. This final putt will have no practice attempts. If the top qualifier sinks the final putt, he or she will win the $5,000 cash prize.
